200.... Well, Sorta

**Edited**
Giveaway is now closed and the drawing has commenced.

Okay, so it's actually 225.

My 225th post that is.

Some how I managed to miss 200. So, let's celebrate it now.

How about a giveaway?!

I'll be honest, I'm not much of an Autumn girl. I prefer Spring. But, since Autumn has started to pop in around here, I thought the giveaway should have an Autumn feel to it... but maybe in more of an Alisa-ish way. A little softer than normal Autumn.

So I have for you...

A composition journal and bookmark, a bingo card (you can't see it here, but it has wishbones at the top), some vintage leaves and flowers, a metal dodad...


velvet ribbon, cream lace, metal maple leaf, mismatched earrings, abalone buckle, creamy buttons, a handful of Autumnish plantlife cards...


a page out of an antique photo album, pompom trim, a tulle and velvet napkin (I think that is what it is), more lace, flocked paper, vintage wallpaper, seambinding and some lovely wide trim.

I actually have a couple more items to put in, but forgot to put them in to be photographed.

So, if you want a chance to win, leave a comment and I'll pick a winner on Thursday at noon (central time).

Good luck and thank you all so much for reading my ramblings!!!

Congrats on 225! I have a long ways to go, having only blogged 65 posts so far. And WOW on the give-a-way things. It's almost like reading the ingredients for a special recipe. As I read them off all kinds of ideas were going off in my mind. Thanks for entering my name.

Thank you for stopping to see me for Pink Saturday. I am sorry I am late coming by to visit. It was our Annv. this weekend & my hubby surprised me & took me out of town. I had no idea...so now I am behind but, it was so much fun. I LOVE all the itmes in the give away & would love to be entered. Also CONGRATULATIONS on 225 posts. It does fly by doesn't it? My 1 year Blogversary went by & I didn't realize it. I need to get a give away together too but, I have to get Trade Days behind me. Have a great week.

Oh lovely giveaway! I love Spring too, but I'm very partial to fall. It's summer (too hot) and winter (too cold and wet) that I have the most to grumble about...
